Legends from a mythical place, brought to life through our Gin.
Inspired by the myths and legend of Orkney our recipe has been perfected over many years.
Orkney Gin Company is a family run business based in Orkney, a stunning set of Islands off the north coast of Scotland. The rugged coast, our rich archaeology, and the wind-swept hills provide a source of inspiration for us. The botanicals that can be found growing in this wild environment have formed the bases of our gin. All carefully crafted for you to enjoy!
Our Johnsmas Gin is inspired by the long, clear days of an Orkney Summer where the sun barely sets behind the standing stones of the Ring of Brodgar. Fragrant, fresh and light, Johnsmas Gin is crafted using a variety of hand-picked seasonal botanicals from our islands and beyond to capture the clean and refreshing floral notes of midsummer.
Traditionally marked by bonfires, festivals, and music, this time of year is steeped in traditional Orkney folklore.
Orcadian Heather Flower
The Mikkel Feast, or the Feast of St Michael was traditionally celebrated by Orcadians from the 29th of September to the 12th of October. This celebration marked the end of the harvest and the end of an Orkney summer. The tradition still exists today with each island hosting it’s own Harvest Home, a traditional meal and dance that lasts long into the night.
Bold, seasonal botanicals are used to capture the warming autumnal spirit of Mikkelmas in a spicy, silky smooth gin. As the sun sets into the Autumn sky’s this gin captures all the magic and autumnal colours.
